36. I Fell in Love with an Exceptionally Bright Witch

As the pair descended the stairs, the fighting grew louder, and their steps became fainter, lost in the sound.  When Hermione reached the foot of the steps, she looked directly to her left, only to see Lily battling 3 death eaters and James standing right behind her, awestruck of the young witch's power.

 

"Stop gawking and help me!", she heard Lily yell.

 

Hermione rushed off in a random direction, much to Sirius' confusion.  He ran into the chaos after her, and saw Lily and James running in front of him.  Carressa and Remus were bringing up the rear, and the group came to a sudden halt.  They linked hands and apparated to a large area filled with flats, and other homes.  It looked like an average area, no significance. 

 

"Hermione... Where are we exactly?", questions James.

 

"We're in Godric's Hollow.", she replied.

 

"Why here?", questioned Remus.

 

"I... I need to tell you something.  James. Sirius. You remember when you found me in that alleyway when you first met me... I... Can I trust you all with something?", said Hermione.

 

"We've been through a load", muttered Carressa.

 

"Been bestfriends since your first day at Hogwarts", said Lily.

 

"Spent countless days in an out of school with you."

 

"You can tell us anything", said Sirius.

 

"I'm not from around here...  I'm from another time.  A future time, where Tom Riddle, is Lord Voldemort, where he has risen to power again.  An unsafe place.  And I was part of a group that worked to destroy these horcruxes, pieces of Voldemort's soul, so he could become truly mortal, and we could kill him."

 

"Do you really think that should change anything Hermione....", said Carressa.

 

"I was worried it would, that you guys would think of me as a liar, and not speak to me again.  I understand if you are upset, you have every right to be.  Sirius stood up from the little bench he was resting on, and walked off into the streets, caked with snow.  Hermione knew they would need to find shelter soon, and she prayed Sirius would come back.  

 

"Go.  Go get him.  We'll look for a place to stay, and when we locate one, we will come an find you.", said James, as Lily shooed her away.  

 

Hermione ran off after Sirius and caught up with him a little bit into the forest.  A secluded, quiet place.  

 

"How could you not tell me Hermione?  I thought you could trust me?", said Sirius.

 

"I'm sorry! You have to understand how much I wanted to tell you, but I just... I couldn't.  Dumbledore..", but Sirius cut her off.

 

"When are you going to stop.  Stop.. Using Dumbledore as an excuse?", he said as he turned to face Hermione.  Both had puffy eyes, and Hermione had tears streaming down her cheeks.

 

"Hermione.  You're an.... Exceptionally bright witch, the most brilliant person I've ever meant.  I love you, I fell in love with you for you.  Not for your time.  I love you no matter what.", said Sirius.

 

"Even if I'm.... Muggle born... I am..... I've never known you to be prestigious of your blood status."

 

"If anything... It makes me love you even more.", said Sirius, as he kissed Hermione's head.

 

Hermione broke into tears, and fell into Sirius' arms.  As soon as she was stable again.  He knelt down on one knee, pulled an small box from his cloak, opened it, to reveal a beautiful golden ring, witth a moderate-sized diamond in the center.

 

"You can't fight this war on your own.  Let me help you, I'll be there for you until the very end.  Will you marry me, Hermione Granger?"

 

"Yes.", she said and Sirius slipped the ring onto her finger, twirled her in the air as she let out a small squeal.  As he let her down, he pulled her into a long, sweet, kiss.
